Stroll through the sparkling Christmas markets in Salzburg's Lake District and visit the three villages of Saint Wolfgang, Saint Gilgen and Strobel which lie around the beautiful, tranquil waters of Lake Wolfgang.

Your first stop will be the idyllic Strobel, a village famous for its Christmas nativity scene where you can get into the Christmas spirit with hundreds of candles, lanterns and Christmas trees.

Then, enjoy a romantic boat ride to the rustic Christmas market in Saint Wolfgang. You'll pass by a giant floating lantern and illuminated Ochsenkreuz altar and experience great views of Falkensteinwand mountain. As you cruise, you'll hear the sound of festive marching bands echo across the entire lake.

The tour ends with a visit to the village of Saint Gilgen, famous for its church from the film "The Sound of Music" and its links with the Mozart family. Here you have the opportunity to purchase traditional seasonal gifts such as spices, handmade toys and Christmas tree decorations at the end of a memorable tour.
